I would recommend HomeLight to anyone who wants to work with a top-notch realtor and get their home sold fast! I received a full offer the day after putting my home on the market.

We didn't know where to start before we found HomeLight. We went from not having any idea who to work with to having a top notch realtor who matched our needs.

I did not have any contacts to any real estate agents in the DC area and it was helpful to have the HomeLight recommendations - much better than just pulling a name out of the air.

Frequently Asked Questions

When is the right time to hire a real estate agent in Athens?

It's going to depend on the temperature of the Athens housing market but we generally recommend that you hire a real estate agent as soon as you're thinking of selling your home. Generally speaking, that's anywhere from 3 to 6 months prior to your desired move date.

How important is it to hire a top real estate agent in Athens?

On average, the top performing 5% of seller's agents generally command a higher selling price (+9%) than the average real estate agent. The top performing 5% of buyer's agents generally save their clients 2.5% more than the average real estate agent at closing. So, whether you're buying or selling your house, your odds of making more money on the transaction are higher if you work with a top performing agent.

Why do I need to hire a licensed real estate agent in Athens?

Always ensure you’re working with a trained, accredited real estate professional. That's the best way to protect you and your property. Every listing agent should be prepared to deliver proof of their license to sell in your area.
